17th Feb 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 17th February 2019

Continued milder conditions throughout this week, has provided anglers with the opportunity to tempt some of the fish up to Dries, other anglers found Various Lures to still produce some decent bag numbers. Buzzers and Diawl Bach’s have also been picking up fish, which are feeding subsurface. Despite the warmer air temperatures the wind chill can still make it feel rather cold. The temperatures are set to rise this coming week; so we may begin to see some nice early evening rises. Thrunton held a TEFF Friendly Competition this week, where 29 anglers travelled from as far as Cumbria to help raise some money for the England Bank Team. Alec Harvey from Cramlington won the friendly competition and David Parker landed the first fish of the day. The competition was scored using a playing card system, where the best poker hand wins. Prizes were also given to anglers who were dealt a Joker from the deck of cards. Thank you to all anglers who attended the event and Lee Cartmail for organising the event.
